Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has on Wednesday said that “even morons would not describe the mediocre performance of President Buhari as superlative”.
In a statement made available by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, in Abeokuta, Ogun State , Obasanjo reiterated that he would not endorse failure, adding that he had not shifted ground on his open letter to Buhari, which he wrote on January 23, 2018.
In the January letter, Obasanjo had scored Buhari low on economy and security, accusing him of running a clannish administration, among others.
The statement further read, “For the record, Obasanjo has not and cannot endorse failure.
“His position remains as stated in his January 23, 2018 statement on the state of the nation. Chief Obasanjo sympathises with the plight of the campaigners and supporters of Buhari.
“He doesn’t believe dishing out fake news that can only be believed by imbeciles will turn black into white.
“Nigerians know that Chief Obasanjo has only spoken the truth about widening poverty, alienation and social disunity and near disintegration of the country through Buhari’s incompetence.
“Obasanjo will continue to exercise his right to free speech and no amount of hate speech will assuage Nigerians who are in need of a brand new leadership.
“The mediocre performance of Buhari cannot be described by anybody as ‘superlative’ even by morons not the least President Obasanjo.”
